Daniel Spitzberg enrolled in a Masters program in the Spring of 2009. His research focuses on prize incentives that organize science communities (think X-Prizes). Danny believes peer-review collaboration brings environmental research closer to making a real-world impact. Since graduating from McGill University in 2006, he has brought this to bear in projects in the United Nations, TERI India, and here at NYU’s Environmental Health Clinic. He also co-founded (and sold) a company facilitating collaborative group-work. He currently works at The Breakthrough Institute, a high-profile progressive think tank that promotes working solutions for climate policy. Danny works (travels) as a freelance journalist, covering the often-overlooked value to society of breakthrough science research(ers). On land, Danny bikes and runs. On water, he rows on the Charles River.
